ok, I must say, I am very thankful for my miscellaneous craft supplies that allow me to be creative and make things for little or no money. This is my latest holiday decor project and I'm planning on doing something similar for Christmas so...IF YOU HAVE ANY GOOD IDEAS FOR WORDS LET ME KNOW! I'm thinking I'll for sure do one that says "believe".
I start with 2x4 scraps and cut them to the desired length and then sand them with my electric sander, Then I paint them.
After that I put the word in my chosen font printed from the computer on top of transfer paper and trace over it.
This is how it looks after
Then I paint the words in a contrasting color, I didn't take a picture of the final result, but I distress the edges with my sander and that's it. The look cute stacked on a shelf or hanging on a wall, or just by themselves.
I am also thankful for this cute, sweet, funny little girl. I played Barbies with her tonight. She was my mom's old Ken and I was Barbie. She makes them talk now and it is too cute. Family came over for cake and ice cream for Micah's birthday tonight and Micah's best friend Colton came too and is spending the night. It was a great night and I'm thankful to have so many of our family here close to us.
